Loch Kelly: Accessing and Living from Self

In this 3 hour experiential workshop, meditation teacher, author and psychotherapist, Loch Kelly, MDiv, LCSW will offer unique and effective ways to understand and experience Self in therapy and in the midst of your day. Loch has co-taught three 5 day retreats with Dick Schwartz on accessing Self. Self is the centerpiece of both IFS psychotherapy and most meditative awakening traditions. Loch will offer different ways that Self can be as clearly known as our parts.

Everyone has a Self and everyone is Self. Self is not created, developed or conditioned.. Self is the “I am” without, being defined as “I am this or I am that.” Self is equally available to everyone as who we essentially are. Self loves and can protect all exiles and all protectors. Self is also within all parts. Parts can learn to know Self and we can see and live from Self.

In this online workshop you will learn:

  • Why, if Self is essential to each of us, have so few discovered it
  • The traps of spiritual bypass, psychological underpass, intellectual overpass, and meditative rest stops.
  • Loch’s 11 i’s of Self Essence, to add to IFS’s 8 c’s of Self Energy and 5 p’s of Self Leadership
  • How to distinguish Self from Self-like parts, such as the mindful witness or a smart therapist part with small “c” compassion
  • How to distinguish forms of subtle body energy from Self- energy.
  • New ways to unblend from parts and know Self as clearly as you know parts.
  • There will be an extended Q&A session where Loch will be available to answer questions.
  • Participants will leave with new tools for understanding and accessing Self.

Ed Yeats, PhD

Shamanism and The IFS Therapist: Shamanic Healing, Guides and the IFS Protocol

If you do IFS therapy long enough, or you go deep in your own IFS therapy, you will likely encounter energies, problematic entities, Guides and past life parts, along with other experiences that challenge the prevailing cultural worldview. The IFS protocol provides us with an elegant “technology” for how to help. However, this aspect of what happens in IFS therapy is rarely discussed and only taught in the later phases of IFS training….so there is a natural curiosity, even thirst for an opportunity to learn.

Ed Yeats, who trained and practiced as a shamanic practitioner well before he encountered IFS will be a gentle guide into this magical territory. If your parts allow, on behalf of your clients and your own healing journey, this workshop offers the opportunity to be introduced to shamanism, the shamanic worldview and shamanic healing, as it has been practiced in indigenous cultures all over the world for over 40,000 years.

Through didactic presentation, direct experience, story and song, we will explore this territory in an atmosphere of warmth and respect. We will look into the parallels between IFS therapy and classical shamanic healing methods. With an eye toward application to clinical practice, you will be introduced to compassionate Spirits (aka Guides) in various ways, including examples, based in experience, of how they can be recognized and invited to help at specific points in the IFS protocol as well as between sessions. Ed has presented his one-day workshop numerous times at the annual IFS conference.

Dick Schwartz: IFS and Couples

“Many couples… battle demons that our culture and its relationship experts implicate, such as poor communication and lack of empathy, they feel bloodied and beaten by their inability to make it work. They alternate between blaming each other and themselves… Conditions exist… that, if left unchanged, will preclude finding the intimate, mutually supportive and respectful connection they crave. This book will describe those conditions and offer a clear path to changing them… with something I call courageous love.” – From “You are the One you’ve been Waiting For” Chapter 1 is downloadable here: You Are The One

This workshop will include a live demonstration

By the end of this workshop, participants will be able to:

  • assess the protective patterns of couples
  • help couples make a U-turn in their focus
  • hold couples in Self leadership as they speak to each other
  • detect the protective parts of each partner and help them speak for those parts
  • safely do inner work with one partner while the other compassionately witnesses

Here is a short video of Dick talking about how burdened parts can inform partner choices
